    It's way more fun to support financials on a healthy business than a struggling one....


    and our family owned company has been generating healthy finances for 5 generations!  But we're not complacent -- we're constantly looking for ways to be innovative and find better solutions for our customers.  That doesn't end with the products and services we bring to restaurants, hospitals, and educational systems.  It carries to the way we manage our business transactions in the short-term and our strategy for the long-term.   


    Our Accounting and Finance teams play an important role in keeping Gordon Food Service operating effectively and efficiently.  From strategic work in the development of annual and long-range operating plans to establishing infrastructure that keeps financial transactions flowing efficiently (our employees and vendors like that!), to credit operations that recognize the unique positions of our customers large and small.....we are reliant on this group of professionals and the work they do each week, each month, each quarter.
